, dan. the death toll continues to climb with at least 1 american and 11 other hostages reported to have been killed. the algerian military has twice stormed the natural gas facility. but authorities say the situation this morning, is still not resolved. and a number of western workers, including americans, apparently remain hostages. the state department has now confirmed that 58-year-old fred buttaccio of suburban houston, was killed at some point during the attack and subsequent rescue effort. but another american, mark cobb of corpus christi, texas, is now confirmed as safe. cobb was the senior manager at the bp facility algeria. and sent a message saying, i'm alive. the al qaeda-linked group claims the attack on the facility in the african desert, had been planned for some two months. in both assault, the algerian army, using tanks and helicopters, found the terrorists were heavily armed and prepared to fight to the death. one official described the aftermath as carnage. hostages who escaped or were freed, said the terrorists only wanted westerners or americans, and were brutal in t
. at the table today, dan gross, tracy meres, law professor at yale university. thanks to all of you for being here. >> thank you. >> i want to start with you in part because i tell this story, a story that i think has been lost even though it's recent history. i worry as we enter into the new conversation about guns and the possibility of getting common sense gun legislation that we will miss this has not always been a partisan issue and hasn't been id logically marketed. what do we learn from this history? >> history is long standing. it goes back far beyond the black panthers. during the fugitive slave law resistan resistance, frederick douglas resisted slave catchers. we see it moving up through the 1960s. your point about the black panthers is interesting. it's a stage where in my scholarship i have described at the dichotomy. the leadership and grass roots made a distinction. they thought it was a crucial resource for black folks. up to the point of the radical resistance of the black panthers, that dichotomy was vividly upheld. the panthers sullied that process. the book i'm working on
was forced to make a emergency landing today. dan springer is in seattle with the details on what happened. none of these planes have crashed, no serious injuries but still a big problem for boeing, huh? >> reporter: that's right. for more perspective, jon, worldwide there are six 787s flying. four of them left to the u.s. or coming to the u.s.. this is not a worldwide panic. this latest incident happened in western japan during a flight on all nippon airways. a warning light came on. a the pilot smelled smoke. it caused a landing early landing but they confirmed there was no fire but a smoke coming from a lithium-ion battery that sits behind the cockpit. looks like another electrical problem for the 787 but not the same battery that caught fire after landing in boston. the passengers and crew all evacuated down the chute. a couple of minor injuries were reported. the chairman of ana apologized to his customers. he ordered all 17 dreamliners to being taken out of service for a safety inspection. japan airlines followed suit with its seven dreamliners. jon. jon: are these incidents part of

themes and we just learned this from dan lothian who covers the white house. this is sort of the fact that the president is confronting the reality of a divided washington that he'll be acknowledging that there are some divisions but he'll talk about how there's responsibility to work on issues where there are common ground and, of course, this is considered certainly a speech that is somewhat hard to deliver not only because historically second inaugurals are not always very memorable but also because it's situated in a very weird place temp porely for president obama. we've just had the fiscal cliff battle. there's an upcoming one with the debt ceiling. ep has to acknowledge this not so pretty reality in the washington as he gives a speech that's supposed to be inspirational. >> the reality is the same congress he was working with on friday will be the same congress he's working with come tuesday despite the speech. we'll watch closely to see more details coming up. thank you so much. we'll watch more of this ahead. >> we always know security is tight in washington, but for the inau
reminded of dan rather, the documents were false, but accurate. this was exactly what, if you'll recall, paul ryan in his vice-presidential speech and in other places pointed out that barack obama gave a speech in janesville, wisconsin gm plant and said we're going to keep this open for a hundred years with the auto bailout and they closed it started making those cars in china. i'd like to also point out that china, by the way, the media fact checkers found that to be a lie, too, they sided with obama on that and romney-ryan was correct on that as well. >> steve: sure. >> i'd like to point out that 55% of gm's increased production in china by 55% since the bailout and make seven out of ten cars outside the united states. so it's a good thing we did this 83 billion dollar auto bailout for american jobs. >> steve: sure, but you know, a big part of the president's face are auto union workers, they hear, hey, they're going to ship a bunch of car manufacturing jobs out to china, oh, wait a minute, i don't like that idea. so you've got a fact checking organization that came in and said that's
